Despite botching their own chances to vie for the NFC North title, the Vikings were locked into the 6-seed heading into Week 17, which is why they chose to sit their starters. Now they they head to New Orleans with a rested Kirk Cousins & Co.

Saints’ Path to the Playoffs

  • Straight-Up Record: 13-3
  • Against the Spread Record: 11-5
  • Over/Under Record: 9-7

The Saints cruised to the NFC South title — their third in a row — clinching the division crown all the way back in Week 13. New Orleans even had a chance to secure a first-round bye heading into the final game of Week 17, but San Francisco’s win in Seattle bumped the Saints back down to the 3-seed.

The Saints have advanced to at least the Divisional Round over the past two postseason and will look to avenge their 2018 NFC Championship Game loss with another deep playoff run.
